today, in virginia a very narrow one-point lead in florida. and according to a market university poll he is up by eight points. in colorado the president is up by three points? ohio, he is up by two points. and the most recent polls in nevada and new hampshire have him up there as well. check this out! 332 electoral votes to 188 according -- i think i just knocked that out. to 191. that's from today. the only swing state that shows he is down -- actually tied today but down over all is in north carolina. and then there's pennsylvania. the romney camp made a $120,000 ad buy yesterday and three super pacs supporting romney have poured $6 million into pennsylvania just this week. why, you might ask? well, it's all part of their plan to quote, expand the electoral map. the president is up by four points in pennsylvania and they are still pouring all of that money into it. the poll out today was a franklin and marshall poll. and david axelrod placed an interesting range isser on whether the participate would take minnesota, michigan or pennsylvania. >> i will shave off my mustache if

official number from florida. it is obvious the state has not fixed its voting problems. as i'm sure you remember, it was florida 12 years ago causing the legal disaster between vice president al gore and president george bush. the difference this time, no one cares as much. president obama's victory was well secured without florida's 29 electoral votes. but for florida natives this is frustrating and all too familiar. the state's whole voting system is plagued by bad management and dysfunction. it is usually elected officials running the voting process rather than nonpartisan professionals to. make this system more efficient what florida needs now is better access to polling places and more absentee and early voting. >>> it's also affecting the congressional race. g.o.p. representative allen west is now demanding a recount. the election there is still too close to call. west is down just 3,000 votes against his democratic opponent patrick murphy. west is blaming a county supervisor for rigging the election but murphy is up by more than half a percentage point, meaning there is no ru

votes, florida is still up in the air although the president does have a lead there right now of half of a percentage point. now, it's important to note that obama took nearly every swing state, including colorado, ohio, pennsylvania virginia, and wisconsin. those last three really contributed to his win and to the fact that we were able to call the race relatively early last night. if you remember yesterday, there was speculation that the count could go on for several days in the event of a close race. the popular vote is very close at 50.2% to 48.2, just a difference of two points there but with nearly 100-point spread in the electoral vote, it's really no contest. congressional seats democrats did not gain control of the house, which was to be expected, but they did maintain control of the is that the, picking up seats in indiana and massachusetts, a big win there for elizabeth warren against scott brown. we're still waiting on results from montana and north dakota but departments have the lead right now. the two independents, king from maine and sanders from vermont are expecting
